The service here was beyond description. Without being intrusive the staff was as attentive as any I’ve experienced. The food was outstanding. I had a walleye dish and a lovely glass of wine. I highly recommend this place.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
